Selva Bananito - Sustainable Tourism at its Best

Tented camp
Tented camp
Selva Bananito is a great example of sustainable and responsible tourism at its best. Construction of the lodge began in 1994, after the Stein family declared most of their farm (two-thirds, or 2,000 acres) a private biological reserve. Decades before, much of the native tropical hardwood had been stripped from the land by banana exporters. When the Stein family took over they halted further exploitation of the remaining trees, and used the felled timbers to build 11 cabins on the previously cleared land. Today Selva Bananito Lodge is surrounded by reforested pastures, sustainable farms, and primary rainforest.
